It must get pretty boring reminding people all day to remove their shoes and liquids as an airport security checkpoint agent (that is, in between intercepting hordes of loaded firearms). Occasionally, though, things must get a bit interesting, like when a creep tries to bring through a pair of hollowed out speakers stuffed with ancient mummy limbs.
Security personnel at the Cairo International Airport were thrown for a loop last week, when they noticed something peculiar about the X-ray of two large speakers someone was trying to check on a flight to Belgium. After further inspection, the agents discovered that rather than wires and woofers you might expect to be inside of the audio equipment, there were actually a bunch of random mummy limbs, according to a report by The New York Times.
Specifically, the airport security workers found specimens from two different mummies: two sets of feet and lower legs, two sets of hands and forearms, an upper arm, and part of an upper torso, according to Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities. Apparently, unlike some mummy-robbers, they had no use for the heads.
